Upon checking in, I wanted to add an additional day to my stay. This seemed to confuse the receptionist but she twice assured me I was fully booked. When I arrived at my room at 11pm, the door was propped wide open, the room completely dark with poor outside lighting. After some internal debate, I checked the room to make sure it was safe. The room itself was filthy and reeked of smoke, likely why the door was wide open. The carpeting and bedding appeared old and dirty. The bathroom toilet seat has unknown stains, a bare wire was hanging from a socket and touching the metal hand support bar. The tub faucet had been ripped out of the moulding and then caulked back into place. As a result, it and the shower were unusable. I tried twice with two different receptionists to ensure I was booked for 2 nights: 11/26 @ 11pm and 11/27 @ 9am. Both times they confirmed that both nights were paid for and nothing further was required. The receptionist did run a credit card for the second night. The second receptionist reset my keycard for both days. There was no problem at all until I called reception on 11/28 @ 9:30pm to complain about the internet being down. Reception demanded that I present my ID, not payment. This was all after coming in and out of the hotel several times that day. Since internet was down I soon fell asleep. At approx 10:15 reception began harassing me with calls accusing me of not being checked in. Despite checking in twice over two days with two different staff.

There was no one there in the lobby at 11:30 and they took my reservation and gave it to someone else

No room available

Our large family needed a hotel due to a water leak in our home. We reserved 2 rooms next to each other. While I unpacked groceries, my husband opened the nightstand drawer and found a used drug straw, roll of aluminum foil, zippo lighter, misc cords, and scratch off tickets. Looking deeper in the room we found rat droppings on top of the fridge, dirt and white powder in the drawers and dead roaches under the sink. We took pictures and went down to the office to cancel rooms and the clerk wasn’t even concerned or shocked and stated she didn’t need to see any pictures. Made me call orbitz to cancel my reservation. For the reviews it has the place was gross.

The staff was extremely helpful and kind. I had a maintenance issue which was quickly resolved.

Great location. Hotel closed to VA hospital, university and great restaurants. Available kitchen. Friendly staff.

The property had no pool and no ice machine at all.

I liked it a lot my room in particular was absolutely spectacular!

The price was good compared to the surrounding hotels. There was no "breakfast included". Provided were air pots of coffee, single serve Nature Valley bars and instant oatmeal packages. This was given along one of the walls in the small lobby/office room. The picture of the hotel in the ad is not of the hotel we stayed at. The pictures of the rooms in the ad were bright and appeared to be new finishes. The king room we stayed in was not bright and was dingy.

The room had a large roach. The bathroom had black spots along the calk. I stayed one night and didn’t stay the other five nights. They charged a second night. I was disappointed in the hotel and orbitz on how they handled it.

,messy around grounds w/leaves other than that is was fine.

Location is amazing. Tub was clogged and room had odor. Staff is amazing and friendly.

Nice location Quiet area Walking sistance to publix and restaurants

Not bad room clean nice location got a lot of restaurant staff was alright not great but staff alright
